    LHM supports WM talent with work placement

    Students based at the five Birmingham Universities, including Warwick and Staffordshire University have taken part in the 2012 B-Hive competition offering 29 placements at the leading marketing agencies in the West Midlands including The Digital Marketing Agency LHM Media.

    Entrants of this year’s B-Hive competition will be placed at relevant agencies specialising in PR, Digital, Advertising and Graphic Design.

    The Midlands competition was launched by Pitch Consultants who said: “Rob Markwell, director of Pitch Consultants, said: “It is incredibly difficult for students to get their first break in the creative industries, regardless of the economic climate, however, it has become more evident that those wishing to pursue a career in marketing, design or PR need to realise that their academic achievements will not be enough to secure a job straight after university.

    B-Hive provides bright and determined students with the opportunity to prove themselves to panel of leading employers and thus fast track their way into the industry. At Pitch we are committed to working with the universities to reinforce this message and encourage more students to take part in schemes such as B-Hive.”

    Steven Lawrence, Creative Director at LHM said “Providing young people with opportunities like this is so important for the future of the industry, and exactly why I co-founded the Social Media Partnership in 2009. Giving young people of all backgrounds access to real work opportunities in the current climate is vital. Fortunately, the digital industry is growing year on year and a solid career path for those that choose it.

    Initiatives like B-Hive 2012 give talented students and employers the opportunity to get to know each other. It’s been great to see the ability that’s out there. The winners will pick up a lot learning agency processes and most importantly working with creative talent from multiple agencies.”
